Second Friday Film The Reluctant Radical
March 8 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Watch the trailer here: https://www.thereluctantradicalmovie.com/
The documentary features climate activist Ken Ward as he confronts his fears and puts himself in the direct path of the fossil fuel industry to combat climate change. Ken breaks the law as a last resort and with great trepidation, to fulfill what he sees as his personal obligation to future generations. After twenty years leading environmental organizations, Ken becomes increasingly alarmed by both the scientific evidence of climate change and the repercussions for civilization as we know it. Ken pushes for a crisis level response and when his efforts fail, he embraces direct action civil disobedience as the most effective political tool to deal with catastrophic circumstances.
Following the film, Ken Ward will take your questions via Zoom Conference and speak about his direct action experience and his ongoing work to combat climate change.
The film reveals both the personal costs and also the fulfillment that comes from following one’s moral calling- even if that means breaking the law.
